FieldHawk Dual-Wireless

FieldHawk Dual-Wireless Kit
The FieldHawk Dual-Wireless system includes all the same features as the FieldHawk Dual system, plus the added benefit of a complete wireless connection at the pole.

Instead of using a cable, you can use the Bluetooth system in your data collector and connect to the FieldHawk radio mounted on the pole.  For this connection we use our short range Bluetooth radio which will give you on average 50 to 100 feet of coverage between the radio and you data collector.

As you can see by the picture on the right, no cables at pole simplifies your setup.

Depending on your equipment and needs, this type of link can be used in the following ways.




Conventional Total Station
If you are using a conventional total station, you can use two radios to provide a wireless link for remote control of the instrument from the prism pole. The more experienced surveyor or party chief can run the data collector at the pole, while the less experienced helper can operate the instrument.

Robotic Total Station
If you use a robotic total station you can use two radios to provide your wireless link. FieldHawk is light and easy to carry around compared to other radio technologies. The long range capabilities of FieldHawk will help you get those long shots; no more walking closer to the instrument to regain a connection.

This type of configuration gives you the following benefits:

  • HOT! Wireless Pole Connection - The FieldHawk Dual-Wireless allows you to connect with Bluetooth to the radio mounted on the pole.  No cables to worry about.
  • Weight - Our FieldHawk radios are light. Less weight at the rod decreases user fatigue meaning more productivity in the field.
  • Reliable - FieldHawk includes a high capacity internal battery plus has an external battery compartment. You will never have to worry about not having enough battery life to finish a job.
  • Tough - Every FieldHawk radio includes a soft case to protect your investment. Accidental falls, rain, dust, snow and mud might ruin your day, but not your FieldHawk radio!
  • Options - Because you are not cabled to the radio on the pole you have more freedom.  In tall grass you can mount the radio high on the pole for superior radio performance on long shots. 

Every FieldHawk Dual kit includes the following items:

  • 2 FieldHawk Radios
  • 1 Soft Case
  • 1 Soft Case with pole clamp
  • 2 Smart Chargers
